Ban on Immigrant and Non-immigrant Visas Extended

On Behalf of | Jun 26, 2020 | Immigration |

The United States government has extended the ban on immigrant visas issued outside the United States, adding temporary visas as well. The ban is now extended until the end of 2020 and it now includes H-1B, H-2B, L-1, and J-1 visas. The few exceptions, such as the ones for immigrants working in COVID-19 treatment and prevention, would not apply to a significant number of applicants. This measure should not affect individuals filing for their green card in the United States through Adjustment of Status or those who already hold a visa.
